# Dynamo Definition as a Standalone Script/Application

I’m new to dynamo and parametric modeling in general. I was wondering if dynamo (as a visual programming language) could be used to create stand alone applications other than parametric modeling???

thanks.

Hi Tarek, Maybe some day, but for now, Dynamo is really a curated space for exploring things like parametric modeling, data manipulation, porting data between programs, and computational geometry. If I understand your question correctly, if you want to make a standalone application, Dynamo isn’t the same as a programming language like C++, Java, etc. That is, you wouldn’t write a compilable program with Dynamo. The idea, instead, is that Dynamo can help remove a lot of the overhead that writing code to accomplish a given task otherwise introduces.
